Quercus palustris - exotic
The pin oak is native to North America and can reach heights of up to 28m. Pin oaks are readily distinguished by their deeply lobed leaves which turn bronze in Autumn. Like the common English oaks the pin oak also produces acorns.
Other species of oak in the park which are quite similar to the pin oak, include the red oak (Quercus rubra) and the scarlet oak (Quercus coccinea).
A Pin Oak dating from the 1930s was removed from this location after suffering extensive storm damage in April 2014, a replacement seedling will be planted in its place.
